Freedom of Speech in England: Its Present State and Likely Prospects By Sean Gabb
Hardcover: $40.91
Ships in 6-8 business days.
We live in a world where Lady Chatterley’s Lover is an A Level text, and where documentaries about oral sex are shown on television. Even so, the battle for freedom of speech has not been won.... More > More fiercely than ever in England, it rages on other fronts. There are panics over the promotion of terrorism, and the alleged sexualisation of children. Above all, there is the official war on “hate.” In the name of good community relations, or simply to protect minorities from being upset, whole areas of debate that once were free are now policed. Dissidents risk punishments that range between formal imprisonment and unemployability. In this set of often controversial, essays, Sean Gabb puts the case for freedom of speech in the changed circumstances of today. His subjects include holocaust denial, the possession of child pornography, the rights of BNP members, and the persecution of Emma West, the South London “Tram Lady.”< Less

The Break (Paperback Edition) By Sean Gabb
Paperback: $15.29
Ships in 3-5 business days
No one knows what caused The Break eleven months ago, but there's no sign of its end. It’s Wednesday the 7th March 2018 – in the mainland UK. Everywhere else, it’s June... More > 1065. Jennifer thinks her family survived The Hunger because of their smuggling business – tampons and paracetamol to France, silver back to England. Little does she know what game her father was really playing, as she recrosses the Channel from an impromptu mission of her own, or how her life has already been torn apart. Who has taken Jennifer’s parents? Where are they? What is the Home Secretary up to with the Americans? Why is she so desperate to lay hands on Michael? Will Jesus Christ return to Earth above Oxford Circus? When will the “Doomsday Project” go live? Can the Byzantine Empire and the Catholic Church take on the British State, and win? All will be answered – if Jennifer can stay alive in a post-apocalyptic London terrorised by hungry cannibals, by thugs in uniform, and by motorbike gangs of Islamic suicide bombers.< Less

The Churchill Memorandum By Sean Gabb
Paperback: $21.86
Ships in 3-5 business days
Imagine a world in which Hitler died in 1939. No World War II. No slide into the gutter for England. Anthony Markham doesn’t need to imagine. It is now 1959, and all is right with the world... More > – or with that quarter of it lucky enough to repose under an English heaven. Markham is taking leave of a nightmarish, totalitarian America. He has a biography to write of a dead and now largely forgotten Winston Churchill, and has had to travel to where the old drunk left his papers. Little does he realise that he carries an object that can be used to destroy the Empire. Who is trying to kill Markham? Who is Major Stanhope? Where did Dr Pakeshi get his bag of money? What connection might there be between Michael Foot, Leader of the British Communist Party, and Foreign Secretary Harold Macmillan? Why is Ayn Rand in an American prison, and Nathaniel Brandon living in a South London bedsit? Where does Enoch Powell fit into the story? Above all, what is the Churchill Memorandum? What terrible secrets does it contain?< Less
